The Soul of Creative Writing

The Soul of Creative Writing - Richard Goodman Nice combination of formality (painstakingly annotated with end notes, and lots of quotations throughout the work) and a conversational tone. Especially enjoyed the chapter on "Finding a Great Title". Loved the idea that there is a Title Index, proving that this is a writer who reads (and who enjoys referring to what he's read and what he's found inspiring): reading writers write the best writing references.
